Pope faces uncertain welcome on homeland trip

Benedict XVI to visit mainly Protestant areas, with most Germans saying trip is irrelevant to them.

    As Pope Benedict XVI prepares to visit his homeland, many people in Germany say they find his trip to be irrelevant to them.

    While he was given a grand welcome in mainly Catholic Bavaria when he visited five years ago, Thursday's trip will focus on mainly Protestant areas where the reaction is less certain.
